Overview

Fox Creek Cabin is a former ranger station located in a remote area. It is very small and offers only basic amenities. Guests will need to bring most of the gear and supplies they need to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. The cabin is located in a non-motorized area and can only be accessed by a 2.5-mile hike during the summer months, from the end of Langohr Road. A four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for driving on Langohr Road. Winter access to the cabin requires hiking, skiing or snowshoeing about six miles from the South Cottonwood Trailhead.

Recreation

The South Cottonwood and History Rock Trails are used to access the cabin and are available for hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, depending on the conditions. Both trails connect to the Mount Blackmore Loop Trail, which offers views of the Hyalite Canyon at the summit of Mount Blackmore before descending to Blackmore Lake. Fishing is possible in the area, as well as hunting in the fall.

Facilities

The cabin has bunk beds with mattresses to accommodate up to two people. A small wood stove can be used for heating and cooking. A table with chairs, basic cookware, dishes, utensils and cleaning equipment are provided. An outhouse is equipped with a vault toilet. Electricity and water are not provided. Guests must bring their own water supply and flashlights or lanterns. Guests should also bring their own bedding, dish soap, toilet paper, garbage bags and other supplies. The cabin will need to be cleaned and all trash carried out prior to departure.

Natural Features

The cabin sits at an elevation of approximately 6,700 feet, next to South Cottonwood Creek in the midst of the Gallatin Mountain Range. It is situated in a small clearing surrounded by thick evergreen forest, so it is well hidden from the trails used to reach the cabin. The access trails offer scenic views of wildflower meadows and 10,154-foot Mount Blackmore. Wildlife in this area includes grizzly and black bears, gray wolves, mountain lions, deer, elk, moose, bighorn sheep and Canada lynx. Birders may see a wide variety of bird species.
